    Staff Nurse II Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burlington, VT
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at The University of Vermont Medical Center (Burlington, VT) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Online application then an interview with management and the nurse educator. It's been a while so I'm not sure if current practices have changed. I remember going to HR first to look at the job title and doing an initial interview. Then going to the main campus to interview with the manager of the floor I wanted to work on and meet some of the staff. The I met with the nurse educator.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at The University of Vermont Medical Center in December 2011.

    Interview

    Interview process was intense for IS. They have you meet over the phone, in person with a manager, then meet with the entire team to which you're applying. Be sure to be prepared to answer off the cuff questions, unrelated to the job you're seeking. They like to throw you off the path you would expect when interviewing.

    Applications Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burlington, VT
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The University of Vermont Medical Center (Burlington, VT) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Phone interview by recruiter. Read from a sheet of standard interview questions about team experiences that didn't apply to my former job. Difficult to convey who I was and what I did. A real conversation would have been more meaningful for both them and me. Left no room for that discussion. Recruiter in HR didn't understand what the job is or does.

    Why do you want to work here?
    Can you give me an example of when you were on a team and how you got others to go along when they didn't want to? (We didn't have teams)
    Multiple other team oriented questions.
    What are you most proud of?
    Etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The University of Vermont Medical Center (Burlington, VT) in August 2014.

    Interview

    First you apply through there website and wait for call to set up an interview. Meet up with the supervisor and they do some basic question, really easy going, and follow up some customer service question and probably some emergency situation question. And once you are done with all that they will either send you an email or call you to tell you weather you are in or not.

    One sided video interview which was the first step. Straight forward generic questions. Nothing related to the particular job but more for the leadership capabilities. The questions were given 2 mins to answer. There was the option to repeat the question and 30 seconds to prepare your answer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The University of Vermont Medical Center.

    Interview

    Not very good. You can tell they're desperate for nurses. I applied for 4 positions and got calls for each and single one of them. It was pretty easy to get a job.

    Medical Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I filled out the application form and received a call from the recruiter within a week. We had a very positive discussion and agreed that my qualifications met and exceeded the requirements for the position. Likewise, we discussed mutually favorable logistics for start date, work hours, training schedule, etc. Overall things seemed to go very well and we left off planning to schedule an in-person interview the following week.

    Two weeks have passed and I have heard nothing. I've reached out multiple times via multiple avenues with zero response.

    If they've filled the position with another applicant, that's fine...I'm happy for both parties. However it is unprofessional to leave other applicants hanging without ANY contact, especially when an applicant has reached out for a simple status update multiple times. This makes me question the professionalism of the HR department and frankly I doubt I'll bother to apply for jobs here in the future.
